the fix

After all I have been through with my company protecting itself - my biggest threat is the fixes.

Basically, we are creating more problems and more trouble for ourselves than any hacker could DREAM of pulling off themselves. We are slower. We get ourselves locked out. In some cases, we loose the ability to do our jobs alltogether. The evil hacker doesn't even have to lift a finger. All he has to do is *exist*.

Worse than recovering from a single attack, we loose the fight every minute of every day. Worse yet, we did it on purpose.

Ah well. Can it be that in terms of network security, is the "cure being worse than the disease" just an unavoidable fact?

I honestly don't know.
